Zero-based Budgeting Review Principal Departments
The bill requires the joint budget committee, for the fiscal year commencing July 1, 2020, and for each fiscal year thereafter, to annually review 2 of the principal departments of state government using a zero-based budgeting method so that each principal department is reviewed once every 10 years. The joint budget committee must make appropriation recommendations based on such review. The bill requires the office of state planning and budgeting and each principal department subject to review to assist the joint budget committee with any additional information that the committee may need to complete the reviews.
